Case Kickstart Dark Red Bone Mid-Folding Hunter Knife SUMMARY:
I like the thin design of the knife. For a mid-sized knife, it is comfortable to carry, especially since it has a pocket clip. It has an elegant old school look about it. The blade has a unique design but I think that it should be functional for an everyday carry knife.
Now for the kinker. For the life of me, I can’t open it with one hand. I thought that maybe it was just tight so I applied some gun oil to the action but that didn’t help any. It doesn’t have a thumbnail groove on the spine of the blade like most of your folders so you have to rely strictly on using the thumb stud to open it, which even two-handed is awkward to open. If the thumb stud was ¼-inch further down the blade I think it would work better.
